Description

The space

The location is perfect, quieter than staying at district 1 but it is on the edge of district 1, so just as easy to reach places/restaurants as in district 1, with the benefit of staying in a nice tree lined quiet street.
The house is a big French Colonial style villa with a courtyard surrounded by a few other villas, you get to live like a local.
The kitchen and lounge are spacious with many windows and tropical plants. Your room is typical French villa style, being grand in size (55 sq. m) and has high ceilings with large ensuite bathroom.
The room is big, light and airy but has block out blinds for evening .

I am happy to give you a key and be present when you need help or advice on sight seeing from a local friend.
If you like to explore the city on your own, you have the freedom to do it here, but I'm also happy to hang out with you in my free time.

The local neighbourhood is typical of Vietnamese family with three generations. There is Vietnamese lunch service (every day fresh prepared) next door run by local lunch ladies. Usually a people working in the office and meet there around 11am until 1 PM. You can finger point out dishes you like and free fruit ice tea - just cost 1,5 to 3 usd. It become Alee restaurant after 3 pm with special Vietnamese dishes.

Beautiful French villa that offers a unique experience while in Ho Chi Minh. Large spacious rooms and sitting room. Myself and family of 5 had plenty of space and privacy during our stay. Pham was a phenomenal host and couldn't of asked for more. Great location for walking to the War Remnants Museum, Reunification Palace, many local eateries and park. Great location. I highly recommend this place for a unique experience.

We had a wonderful stay in Pham's gorgeous house. It was spacious and perfect for our two families with small children. The house exudes an old world charm and was the perfect oasis from hcmc's hectic streets, and extremely affordable! Pham is helpful and welcoming. We all highly recommend her beautiful house!

We had an amazing holiday in Saigon staying at this house. The house itself is wonderful, lovely big rooms and very airy. The location is brilliant, just round the corner from the War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace and only a short walk into the centre to see the other sights and the markets.

A beautiful villa with lots of characters. Really adore the decorations. Although it is located at zone 3 is a walking distance to the war museum. Is really easy to get to other districts via cabs. There are also many nice cafes around. Linh is a lovely host she has kindly welcome us though we didn't arrived until 2:30am. We really enjoyed our stay there:-)
